I have recently been contacted by a number of constituents who are concerned about the planned road closure between Dullatur Roundabout and Queens Drive on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th August 2017.
I am aware that signs were put up earlier this week, informing drivers that the road would be fully closed and the diversion road would be a single track B road travailing through Kilsyth, then Croy.
People are understandably apprehensive about the significant inconvenience caused by this road closure, the lack of notice provided to drivers as well as the likelihood of traffic congestion along the diversion routes.
Additionally, concerns have also been raised about the problems this decision will pose for emergency vehicles and the health and safety aspects of fully closing this road.
I have contacted North Lanarkshire Council to raise concerns about the manner in which this closure has been handled and sought reassurances that all of these issues have been taken into consideration.
If you would like to be kept updated regarding this road closure then please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will ensure you are made aware of any developments.
